Letter to the Editor
It’s interesting to hear the Republican candidates decry the “war on religion” when it’s pretty clear that none of the Republican candidates actually believe in God. From my point of view as a Realist, who puts reality first, if there actually was a God and people had a personal connection to that God then their lives would reflect that. Every one of the candidates are highly dishonest. They lie all the time and they use God’s name to make cheap political points. If they actually believed they simply would not behave that way.
What I see isn’t a war on religion but rather a war on reality. They don’t want you to believe there is a reality out there and that actions have consequences and that in order for humanity to survive and flourish that you have to live in right relationship to reality. It’s not us who is at war with religion. It is those who claim to believe and are lying about it who at war with religion. Religion is more threatened by fake Christians than from those who admit they just aren’t believing the story.
